Acculing will be available on the Translation Services tab found on the WPML -> Translation Management page. This page is available only after registering WPML. The entire process takes a few minutes.

Sending content for translation
Now, you are ready to send content for translation. For detailed steps, please visit our dedicated documentation page.
Receiving a quotation and authorizing your translation
The final setups of your project need to be confirmed directly in Acculing’s translation portal. To do that, click the Translation Jobs tab at the top of the page and click the batch name to be redirected to Acculing’s login page. Once logged in, you will see the name of your batch, the word count and an ‘Estimated price’ in the ‘Pending Projects’ section. Click the ‘Accept’ button to start the translations.
Receiving completed translations
As soon as a translation job is finished by Acculing, it will be ready to be delivered to your website.
Depending on your configuration, translations will be delivered automatically or can be manually fetched from your WordPress admin panel.
To check your configuration, go to WPML -> Settings, locate the Translation Pickup mode section and verify the selected option.
When automatic delivery is selected, translations will be delivered to your website automatically as soon they are complete. At any time, you can check the status of translation jobs.
If you choose the option to fetch translation manually, you can download completed translations from the WPML -> Translation Management page. Click the Check status and get translations button at the top of the page.
Canceling translation jobs
If for any reason, you want to cancel the translation of the pages sent from WPML to Acculing, bear in mind that:
- You cannot manually delete or cancel jobs from the Translation Jobs tab on your website.
- The project can be canceled only in Acculing’s translation portal, provided that the project has not started yet. To do this, log in to your Acculing account.
Depending on your Translation Pickup mode configuration, the cancellation request can be sent to your website automatically through XML-RPC. Otherwise, you must click the Check status and get translations button on the Translation Dashboard tab to refresh the status and see the changes.
As a result, WPML will remove all canceled jobs from the Translation Jobs tab.
